Hey

I want to pick up a nitrous kit for my car but I want some feedback from anyone experienced with it. The do's and dont's. I am aiming towards a zex kit just because I hear its the safest. I have no clue what size jets I want to use. I want to be able to use it every once in a while, but still get some life out of my motor.

Just throw out some opinions... Thanks

-Jon

I had a 50 shot when I had my civic cuz I didnt care whether I blew the motor or not. I sprayed all the time and my motor ran just fine. I wouldnt put it on my srt-4 cuz I dont want to risk this motor. Ohh and I had a dry kit

get a wet kit, there are guys that have been running wet kits since last year and haven't had serious problems.

some have gone to 100 shot and has been working nicely.

the SRT4 can take 75shot easily, make sure it's a wet kit.

Aren't wet kits more dangerous than dry? I am currently looking into a NOS kit for my car but just a 50 shot for the 80mph and up range. People been telling me that the dry is the way to go for a turbo since it will inject into the intake and not the fuel rail. Now I'm really confused..

its my opinion the srt motor is as stout ass bastard and can take alot of spray. because i remember on my h22 most poeple sprayed 50 shots and the guys who did 75 were considered crazy. but i have read here about poeple running 125, 150 shots on this motor and to my knowledge not blowing them up... yet. I guess we will see. Also get a wet kit.

Wet Kit. Don't get Zex get NX or Nos. I have had a few friends that bought that Zex crap and ended up making repairs or buying NX or Nos. However to each his own.
more details.....don't make a post like this without some info to back-up you claim. Several locals are running ZEX setups and the electronic aspect of these newer kits is second to none.

I am running NX but have had a few issues with the quality. My N20 feed line leaked right out of the box. There were a few pieces missing from the Gen-X upgrade also.

so . . . why a wet instead of dry? The possiblity of leaning out? How would you adjust the fuel on the jet? Does it just spray a consant pressure, or is it like another injector controller by the PCM's pressure?
you answered your own question. yes you run the risk of running to lean if you spray dry. dry shots are typically ran on cars that are set up to run nitrous - big injectors, lots of fuel pressure. for cars that are driven daily, using a set up such as that would kill economy and not be streetable unless you like 10mpg on freeway or not having the proper set up, spraying and killing your motor.

wet shot is safest. depending on the kit, in general the fuel is controlled by the size of the jet. all kits come with different size jets for each size shot. obviously the larger shot of n2o, the larger the jet you will use. all kits come with a chart that tell you which jets to use for what hp size shot you want. never mix the jets!
